Wedding planning is a very exciting season of life, but it can also be a bit overwhelming. Our goal as wedding photographers is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Photography is more than just images, it's a real part of your day. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When our couples feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography is a huge part of that experience... shouldn’t it be fun? enjoyable? natural? I think so! My goal is not only to capture memories for my couples, its to create an experience they’ll never forget!
Even though we are based out of Syracuse, NY we'll travel worldwide for weddings. In the past we have traveled to San Diego, Kentucky, Iowa, and the 1,000 Islands for weddings!
My base package starts at $3,550 and each package come with at least 8 hours of coverage, a main and second photographer and all edited high resolution digital images. If you're interested in chatting, send me an email here!
We'll arrive on your big day while you're getting ready and having a great time with your bridesmaids and groomsmen. We'll photograph your "details" like your wedding dress, the rings, etc. as well as you both getting dressed. I typically hang out with the girls while Andrew hangs out with the guys! We'll either do your First Look once you're both ready or we'll your bridal and bridesmaids photos (as well as the groom with his groomsmen). The ceremony comes next, family photos (before everyone scatters!), bridal party pictures, bride and groom (if we didn't do them before the ceremony), cocktail hour, and then its time to party! (Check out some ideal wedding day timelines here!) Really, once Andrew and I have the portraits of you and your family and friends, we'll step back and become more like your paparazzi! Oh, I have to give you a fair warning... you may catch Andrew dancing during the reception, especially if Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop The Feeling" is played!
First off, say hello! Introduce yourself and tell me a bit about your day! I'll check my availability and if I am, we'll set up a coffee date! (ALWAYS coffee!) This is a fun time to meet up and get to know each other! I'm a hopeless romantic so I'll probably ask how you two met and how he proposed! Also during this coffee date I find it so helpful to hear what you have planned for the day so we can sketch a rough timeline. Bring any and all of your questions to our date. After we meet, I'll send you an email with our rough timeline and we'll keep the conversation going back and forth, planning your engagement session and all those fun things until your big day!
